were going the air and callg the presidenof the united states a nazi as rush limbaugh has repeated done. when mark levin-- yomentioned hi- he said the president of the united stes is literally at w with the american people. and then people begi unsurprisingly, showing upt rallies withuns. wellobviously, if the president were. i mean, folks, if i bieved the president of the united statewere a nazi, re planning a fascist takeov, it would be contemptibly cowardly ofe not too everything in my power, including contemplatg violen, to resist such a thin every decent person ould do that. that's why you don say it when it's not true. and i mean, one of the ws that the constitution system works is with me understanding that thpeople on the other side ha slightly different priorities, but they share yr constitutional vues. they have invested in thsame stem. the problems they've got a hard problems. and evenf you don't like their answers, you have to have so restraint inhe way you talk about them, as you would hop they would have out you. and i think it'sust trageous. it is dangerous. it's dangerou
, president obama. it is against everything he is trying to do. you loud mouths like rush limbaugh, sean hannity, all these other folks that you listen to daily, even my good friend joe scarborough, it is ridiculous. all you are trying to do is disrupt something a needs to be done for all people. not just your people and the people you e-mail and try to get something done to disrupt something. host: let's hear from our guest. guest: we have been opposing big government for 25 years. doesn't matter who is proposing it. we proposed many of george bush's policies that were encroachments into people's lives. we opposed bill clinton's tax hikes. we opposed george bush role one's tax hikes. it has nothing to do with president obama. it has to do with healthcare reform going in the wrong direction. we've got a lot of ideas and none of them is it the current legislation and we think it takes it entirely in the wrong direction so we are opposed to the policy. host: how many members does freedomworks claim? >> we have over 700,000 members that we have built up the last 25 years. host: free to jo
senator called the protesters un-american. she retracted that. rush limbaugh went on a long speech during his radio show where he compared democrats to nazis. he compared the president to hitler. i am wondering if the president has seen any of this. the nazi imagery has been condemned by jewish groups but i'm wondering if he feels anything about this. >> i think he has seen news reports. i don't know whether it is written or cable reports. regardless of where we are and the differences we have on an issue as important as health care, i know the president believes strongly that we can discuss these issues without personally maligning the person we are discussing this issue with. we want to do so in a way that respects the dignity of each individual. i think anytime you make references to what happened in germany in the '30's and 40's, i think you are talking about an event that has no equivalent. anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that, they are on thin ice. it is best not deployed. we can have a discussion in our democracy about where we want to go and why or why not we want t
when rush limbaugh says i don't want it to succeed, i want him to fail or senator demint says this is his waterloo, we can kill him, well, these are millions and millions of people listening to this. >> congressman scott, there are also some successful town meetings going on out there. in atlanta, not far from your district, representative hank johnson seems to have had a pretty smooth successful meeting with over 2,000 people in the room. is something changing in georgia? do you think you're going to be able to have a better dialogue than what's been going on so far? >> i think so. and i hope so. we're having our town hall, the one that i'm setting an side for health care this saturday on the 15th from 10:00 to 2:00 p.m. at the high school in my district. we hope for a very civil situation. so that we can get the clear understanding and communicate to the american people exactly how we're going to do this very complex, difficult thing of bringing down the price of health -- cost of health care insurance while at the same time expanding it to others. and our people deserve cal
into a diplomatic disaster. and limbaugh asks if president clinton hit on them. >> we saw standing before us president bill clinton. >> blackwater continues. more charges against eric prince running a jihad against muslims involved as witnesses against his company and tonight while supposedly protecting americans in iraq illegally dealing arms there. gitmo after threatening, torturing and imprisoning without charge or evidence could the bush administration possibly have sunk lower? yes, they bought fake testimony from witnesses with cash and shoes. the bubble headed bleach blond comes on at 6:00. >> in my home state of minnesota so far only two of these deals have actually been approved by the government. >> that's all. >> close, ms. news actress. 2%. not two. 2%. that would be different. and speaking of minnesota, the
to knock down the other side. >> conservative radio talk-show host rush limbaugh says the white house is "looking for tattletales, snitches, and informants." the white house -- republicans point to a new "the wall street journal" and abc poll where people were asked about obama's health care plan. to 46% say it is a good idea. 42% say it is a bad idea. we just got a letter that the republican senator john cornyn sent to president obama. he says he has never been aware of any american president asking american citizens to report fellow citizens for anything deemed fishy. he wants to know what the white house is going to do and what action they intend to take against citizens reported to engaging in fishy speech. there is a lot of back-and- forth. martha: thank you. trace: check out this picture. it looks like a pretty normal journalist, right? she works in sueudan. something you see in this picture is causing riots in the streets. the astounding punishment and her dramatic story in three minutes. having my identity stolen has taken more than money from me. it's taken my time. time that
it no better than rush limbaugh with all of this nonsense. that's just hogwash. >> governor -- >> all the republicans have made this stuff up, week after week you make this up. it's nonsense. >> governor -- >> i can explain it to you, if you would like to. >> i can explain it to you, but you won't listen. >> because there's nothing -- you are making stuff up. >> you're making it up. it's a bad product. you've got a bad product. >> this bill works and you guys are -- >> you're attacking everybody. >> you guys are in the insurance industry. that's the problem. >> the republicans are supporting the insurance industry. democrats are trying to support the american people. that's how how it is. >> the house bill will get a lot of heat because it's on paper. people can point to it. that's not going to become law. so why hasn't the president come out, will he eventually say, look, when this goes to committee, to conference, when it's put together by the house and senate, this is central, this will become law in my own personal view. why hasn't he done that? >> i think he is doing that. >> cle
's being orchestrated by the republican party's other than like fox news and people like rush limbaugh. >> do you know that or do you just believe that? >> this is obvious. >> how is it obvious? >> every day -- fox doesn't tell people you have to do this or that. >> but -- >> but they are putting out the message to the people the birth conspiracy -- >> what does that have to do with health care? >> all of these people are coming together and a coalition of pranks who have created this. >> what did we learn in civil protest? we learned it from you guys. >> what is going on here is the republican party is losing control of its own base. >> oh, please! come on! >> the republican party have all of these different lpts fighting about control of the party. >> you people on the left have lost control of the people what they care about. >> let me ask both of you a question. i disagree. i think everybody understands what people care about which they feel like they want work in a fair system and their voice can be heard and basically is there a level playing field. whether it's on et left or the
rush limbaugh's attention. >> it's becoming cool to make fun of obama. >> reporter: maybe not quite so much in new york city. >> yucky. >> extremely disturbing. >> stupid. >> childish. >> whether you like the guy or not, you don't do that to anybody. >> shame on them. >> reporter: shame doesn't seem to be inhibiting critics. >> bravo, mr. president. bravo. >> reporter: the white house had no comment on the joker image. but what do the joker and socialism have to do with one another any way? robert dockerty points out that the joker supports anarchy. >> the only sensible way to live in this world is without rules. >> reporter: critics counter the president and the joker tend to give away money. to cash in, the website "hero builders" plans to sell an obama joker action figure for 50 bucks apiece. but for some, the image is down right disturbing. >> i think i do have a problem with the white face. >> reporter: back when president bush was in office, he got the joker treatment. so did hillary clinton. but when it comes to the current president -- >> it's a right wing spin, disgraceful and
and right and wrong. >>> and rush limbaugh comparing president obama's health care low e lowgo to a swas ka. how does the talk compromise is whole darn country, contessa? >>> then women, this is the result, contessa, women have been driven to drink. the statistics show it. that story of the wrong way driver who killed seven, including four children, may not be an isolated case. a new report suggests women are drinking more than ever. >>> swine flu in schools. a live news conference this hour to announce the government's plan of action. dr. nancy snyderman will join us. it is 9:00 a.m. friday morning. nice to see you. >>> welcome. a nice day. >> this is big story of the morning here. this was supposed to be a town hall in tampa, florida. hosted by congresswoman, kathy castor. >> you work for us, you work for us. >> police estimated 1500 people tried to cram into an event. they jammed up against the doors. one guy says he was actually man handled, may end up going to police about it. >> one of them took my arm and doing a arm -- arm twist, tore my watch off, then the other one grabbed me by t
news and to disrupt -- rush limbaugh and to disrupt the organized campaigns. you noticed that most of the disruption is in democratic town halls. they are not disrupting republican town halls. that let's you know it is planned. unfortunately like this last lady said, they are usually older people who are already on socialize medicare and either don't realize they are on socialized medicine already. texting host: thank you, jamie. a common from teresa from twitter. peaceably assemble. " the new york times" on the front-page reports on how people start their day with waking up and getting on line first. coffee can wait, the day's first stop is on line. i will pull this and just read a piece of the story. the surge in early risers is reflected an on line and wireless traffic patterns. internet companies that used to watch traffic levels rise only when people booted up at work now see the uptick much earlier. a boston company that analyzes internet use says web traffic and the united states gradually decline to midnight until 6:00 a.m. on the east coast and then a huge morning caffeine
will be on what rush limbaugh and i am sure we will be mocking liberals and mocking ourselves and mocking conservatives because this program is all about rude talking condescending nasty liberalness. anyway but in my defense my son is all for this. so how is your son? >> twenty. >> clayton: seth mcfarlane the creator of the show had this to say simin han sure a lot of reaction will be you monsters. how could you have karl rove on your show. but you know, we also take a lot of heat from a lot of right-wingers for the fact that we are so liberal and so blatantly liberal sweep it what's next in the. >> i'm taking a lot of heat for being associated with seth mcfarlane. >> clayton: this is not the only show karl has done. we also have word now that paula abdul (title, speed when they are looking at you for a new host a three-day contacted us sing you would be fantastic to hunt you are taking over paula abdul. >> when a segment is over you and i have a few things to say clayton. >> clayton: thank you graphics department we appreciate you. >> that was clayton. they put a superimpose my ever clay
are dying every day because of that. >> if that all wasn't enough, conservative radio host rush limbaugh is fanning the flames by making analogies comparing president obama to adolf hitler. on his radio show yesterday, he said, quoting here, the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. that prompted strong words from the white house. >> i think any time you make references to what happened in germany in the '30s and '40s, i think you're talking about an event that has low quibbling. and i think any time anyone ventures to repair anything to that, they're on thin ice. and it's best ndenot deployed. >> so everyone's all fired up here. so asking what do you think about this, how everything's all ramped up in this debate about health care and the town hall meeting. so i posted this question on my facebook page. got a huge response. this is what hal wrote -- i think people are fed up with no answers, answers. they want real answers to real questions and they're not getting them. that's why hal thinks the protesters are really getting rally at these town halls. allison wro
to contend with. first, rush limbaugh happily admitted he wants our president to fail. then a republican senator openly admitted he wants to block the health insurance reform for millions as a way to -- quote -- "break the president." another republican senator admitted that at least half of the other side's opposition to reform is purely political. and an influential commentator advised the republicans to avoid consensus at all costs and instead go for the kill. these partisan tactics have consequences. these consequences will be evident when every kitchen table, every family budget and every american's peace of mind. and they're watching. a poll released last week found that a majority of americans credit president obama for putting partisanship aside, trying to work with congressional republicans to get this done for the good of the country. republicans, they found, weren't returning the favor. others may be focused on delaying health insurance reform, but we will make sure we won't let that hafplt we already have seen what happens when we do nothing. the costs of sitting this one out
